The Daily Haiku

A world of five - seven - five. At one time daily, now kind of sporadic.

Goodbye Harvey Korman
You were a great funny-man
Always remembered

Current theme: Elements

Burning in spirit
These driving forces of will

Quicker in the wind
Awareness encompasses
All reality

Flowing empathy
Turn to face the conflict
Within compassion

Steady in the earth
Determination of thought
Unyielding mountain

The sparking of life
Blooms into new consciousness
Connecting outward

Current theme: Jupiter

The Great Red Spot joined
By two more smaller red spots
Why did they appear?

Current theme: Pressure

The work day beckons
Must try to meet the deadline
Even though poorly planned

Current theme: Rhythms of Chaos

Patch the signal through
Sequencer into reverb
Bass drum like thunder

Half-note ecstasy
Tribal rhythms of chaos
Quickening tempo

Each beat of the drum
An invocation to rise
Above the mundane

Snare the lightning crash
Accentuate the measure
Feral overture

Low growl of the bass
Distorted frequencies call
Counter melody

Twisting motes of sound
Beautiful cacaphony
Empowers the mindset

Current theme: Gale

Threatening black thunderstorm
Blots out the sunlight

Down in pours the rain
Terrential and drenching all
This driving torrent

Wall of air slams down
As trees topple from their roots
A violent windstorm

Face first in the gale
Each raindrop stings exposed skin
Walk through the maelstrom

Current theme: Bad Drivers

A little drizzle
And NJ drivers go nuts
Hey! Calm down you freaks!

Current theme: Layoffs

Hear the axe whistle
Still above but getting close
So far yet so near

Current theme: My Sister's Birthday

Happy Birthday, Michelle!
I smell you aging from here!
Like some moldy cheese! :)
